I decorated this cute little basket with a pink Lace Rose I made.
We filled the basket with some pink and green dyed eggs.
Egg Dying Tutorial:
Hard boiled Eggs (Cooled)
1 Coffee Mug for each color you want to do
1/2 cup of water in each mug
Food coloring 10 to 20 drops of each color
1 Tbsp of Vinegar
Put Food Coloring and vinegar into water
Newspaper (on table in case of spills)
(I am so glad I put this down first or my table would probably be green)
Paper Towels (For laying eggs on to dry)
Put your egg in a pan covered with water.
I use lukewarm tap water.
You don't want hot water it may crack your eggs.
When your water starts to
boil cook eggs for 10 min.
Carefully put the eggs in the dye with a tablespoon.
Every once in a while check the eggs by seeing how dark they are.
While we were doing this together we had a little talk time how the egg represents life and that through Jesus we can have new life.
The Bible tells us to train our children while they are young.
The longer you leave the egg in the dye the darker it will get.
After you remove the egg from the dye, dry it off with a paper towel and then lay it on a paper towel to dry.
After eggs are completely dry place them in a cute decorated basket.
